The application asks for the financial aid of $200,000 for the building work and a further $1,00 for each new staff member to offset the cost Volition’s plans. Should the application fail, the developer will seek for financial assistance elsewhere outside of the city.

A meeting with Volition and the City Council took place on Tuesday, and GamesIndustry reports that, because of the importance of the studio to its surrounding businesses, the developer would have been inlined to reach of compromise.

Furthermore, according to a memo that was sent to the City Council, the push for the most effective solution to Volition’s remodelling plans came directly from its parent publisher Deep Silver.
